The following table describes the concepts and terms that are introduced with the new web user interface.
Table: Web user interface terminology and concepts
A user that has complete access and permissions to NetBackup and all of the interfaces, including the NetBackup web UI. The root, administrator, and Enhanced Auditing user all have complete access to NetBackup. In the NetBackup Web UI guides, the term NetBackup administrator also refers to a user that has full permissions for NetBackup. Usually in reference to a user of the NetBackup Administration Console.
Also see role.
See intelligent group.
The data to be protected, such as physical clients, virtual machines, and database applications.
An immediate backup of an asset. NetBackup performs a one-time, full backup of an asset using the selected protection plan. This backup does not affect any scheduled backups.
In the NetBackup web UI, indicates that a legacy policy protects the asset. Legacy policies are created with the NetBackup Administration Console.
A security certificate that is issued from any CA other than NetBackup.
Allows NetBackup to automatically select assets for protection based on the criteria (queries) that you specify. An intelligent group automatically stays up-to-date with changes in the production environment. These groups are also referred to as asset groups.
For VMware and RHV, these groups appear under the tab.
An instant access VM or database that is created from a NetBackup backup image is available almost instantaneously, achieving a near-zero recovery time objective. NetBackup mounts the snapshot directly on the backup storage device and the snapshot is treated as a normal VM or database.
A security certificate that is issued from the NetBackup CA.
A protection plan defines when backups are performed, how long the backups are retained, and the type of storage to use. Once a protection plan is set up, assets can be subscribed to the protection plan.
Role-based access control. Administrators can delegate or limit access to the NetBackup web UI through the roles that are configured in RBAC.
The roles that you configure in RBAC do not control access to the NetBackup Administration Console or the CLIs.
For RBAC, defines the operations that a user can perform and the assets or objects that they can access. For example, you can configure a role to mange recovery of specific databases and the credentials that are needed for backups and restores.
The storage to which the data is backed up, replicated, or duplicated (for long-term retention).
Subscribe, to a protection plan
The action of selecting an asset or an asset group to subscribe to a protection plan. The asset is then protected according to the schedule in the plan. The web UI also refers to Subscribe as Add protection.
Unsubscribe, from a protection plan
Unsubscribe refers to the action of removing protection or removing an asset or asset group from a plan.
The type of asset. For example, VMware, RHV, or Cloud.
